Stay in the conversation and provide your members with the information they crave. Advocacy’s new SBO fact sheets will provide you with all the tweetable statistics you need for a week devoted to small business.

This set of eight fact sheets provides a digestible overview of updated small business ownership data for women, veterans, minorities, and individual races and ethnicities based on ownership categories. Each fact sheet provides the number of small businesses by demographic group; employment; revenues; top industries; and where relevant, changes relative to the 2007 data.

Notice of Proposed Amendments to SBIR and STTR Policy Directives

The Small Business Administration is proposing to revise the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program’s policy directives to combine the two directives into one document. The proposed rule will also clarify the data rights and Phase III preference afforded to SBIR and STTR small business awardees, add definitions relating to data rights, and clarify the benchmarks for progress towards commercialization.

Comments are due here by June 6, 2016.
